, president obama calls out republicans. late this afternoon, the president gave a news conference at the white house. he strongly defended his health care law, and he slammed republican extremists for their threat to shut down the government if obama care isn't defunded. >> between october 1st into march, there will be an open enrollment period in which millions of americans for the first time are going to be able to get affordable health care. now i think the really interesting question is why it is that my friends in the other party have made the idea of preventing these people from getting health care their holy grail, their number one priority. the one unifying principle in the republican party at the moment is making sure that 30 million people don't have health care. >> they are holy grail. their number one priority. >> the notion is simply that those 30 million people or the 150 million who are benefitting from the other aspects of affordable care will be better off without it. that's their assertion. not backed by fact, not backed by any evidence. that's just become an ide
with president obama's national security team moving forward with the syria plan. in an unusually hectic friday before labor day, today saw a flurry of conference calls and meetings on the crisis. if there are any doubts the u.s. will strike despite the fact that the president insists he's made no decision. this is president obama just a short time ago. >> we cannot accept a world where women and children and innocent civilians are gassed on a terrible scale. i have said before and i meant what i said, that the world has an obligation to make sure that we maintain the norm against the use of chemical weapons. >> much earlier, the white house made public its unclassified intelligence report. the assessment of the syrian government's use of chemical weapons on august 21st is, 2013, determining that 14g 29 people were killed in the chemical weapons attack, including at least 426 children. and this afternoon, secretary of state john kerry went before the cameras making an impassioned case to punish assad. >> we need to ask, what is the risk of doing nothing? it matters because if we choose to live
. >> president obama spoke briefly to reporters shortly after kerry made those remarks. he was less emphatic, his message was similar. >> part of our obligation as a leader in the world is making sure that when you have a regime that is willing to use weapons that are prohibited by international norms on their own people, including children, that they are held to account. >> the team of u.n. weapons inspectors invest galting tigai attack have now left syria. pentagon officials tell nbc news that five guided missile destroyers are in the eastern mediterranean sea and nearly all of the targets have already been loaded into the warheads of some 200 tomahawk cruise missiles. a strike would be limited and tailored to syria's chemical weapons program. president f president obama were to order such a strike it will come without support from great britain. prime minister david cameron suffered a humiliate regbuk in parliament after they voted against military intervention. cameron says he will honor their wishes. france's leader says they are in, and he -- any american strike would also come without the
for watching us tonight. the biggest failure of the obama administration that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. in order for more than 300 million americans to have a chance at prosperity, you need a vibrant economy. at this point the usa does not have one. that is now on president obama. as you may know, the president's economic vision is focused on so-called economic justice, giving help to americans who don't have very much, providing vast entitlements means big spending and taxation. the president doesn't seem to trust the capitalist civic, instituting new regulations in the marketplace, inhibiting business expansion. the social justice economic plan is failing. the u.s. economy is stagnant, thus quality of life is going down in this country. here are the facts to back that statement up. 7 out of 8 jobs created during the obama administration have been part time jobs. 54% of american workers make less than $30,000 a year. when mr. obama took office, he averaged unemployment paid to an individual was 20 weeks. now it's 37 weeks. number of americans who have stopped loo
will be swimming a white house ceremonyny because they don't like obama's politics. welcome to the club, boys. are they principal and admirable or meanies out to hurt our president's feelings. >> and a new poll asks which are the hottest, dumbest,t, craziest and we will find out more. and finally you will meet sunny, the family's new dog. i even want to hang out with the obamas on saturday night. >> see you at the end. let's welcome our tabes. well, despite what we put herde through on this show for several years she still returns our e-mails asking her to come back. i am here with imogen lloydebbe webber. her latest book is called "the twitter diaries." and he is as talented as he is tall. she on the set of "the good wife" right now. and proving that 99% in life is having a good name and great hair. next to me is buck sexton, not to be confused with the philanthropist. >> a block. the lede. that's the first story. >> whatever, erk jerk. they took a stand by not shaking his hand. on tuesday president obama welcomed the 1972 miami dolphins to the white house for a ceremony commemorating their
, governor. >> thank you for covering this one, this one is stupidity on steroids, obama administration. >> you know, i don't even get how this one can happen. it's like we give the government hell for a lot of things and you might disagree with things politically, from time to time with administrations, but the whole idea that this guy is, they know about him, they know about this guy and his job, while he is promoting some sort of race war and making gay slurs. we'll find out more as to whether he received a approval for this or not because evidently, thus far it looks like he did receive approval to have this side job of running the website, but it's pretty ironic there that we hear that other officials are saying, oh, appropriate action will be taken if we form a committee and decide whether this guy has violated any kind of hr rule ors not. well, it seems to be appropriate disciplinary action with these very narly hr administration actions. look at the scandals in the irs, and the doj, now dhs and the nsa. these are hr issues. it starts at the top when the big brother bosses beside
held their 40th vote to roll back president obama's health care law. every single gop lawmaker voted for it. voting to hurt health care and to take it away from millions of americans. >> this was a do nothing congress, and now it has gone to something worse. it's a make matters worse congress. we should not leave until we address the challenges that we face. >> that's right. this makes matters worse, congress. it is celebrating by going on vacation for the entire month of august. and when they get back, some of these republicans may actually try to shut down the government in order to kill obama care. today we also got some shocking news about the republican plan for food stamps. they were already calling for a $20 billion cut, which would kick about five million people off food stamps. now they want to double those cuts to $40 billion. it's stunning. these republicans aren't taking away money from big oil or big banks. they're literally taking food away from the poorest among us, the least fortunate. don't john boehner, eric cantor and these other republicans have any shame at all?
that this has been too much information provided by the obama administration. how have officials you have spoken to responded to that charge? theer: is difficult, criticism. i think it is hard to find merit with a lot of this criticism. the state department, since the lockerbie bombing, the pan am bombing in 1988, has been operating under a no double standards rule, meaning that goes tonformation that official american employees and diplomats serving abroad needs to be or has to be shared with the american public. if they have a specifically credible threat that can close an embassy, they are required to share it with the public. meritot really see much in the criticism. i know that some people have been complaining that the amount of specificity and the location identification of the closed embassies may have tipped off or did tipoff potential attackers and may have alerted them to how their communications were intercepted or compromised, but i think that in the interest of safety in, official americans and private americans were traveling, the state department is operating with an abundance of
% was that number. which makes this current spat a bit more tense, right? >>> also tonight the fight over obama care takes a recess. the summer of the angry anti-obama care town hall is back. but unlike last time this story played out, it is republicans who are feeling the heat. >>> plus why the federal government needs to rethink the science around medical marijuana. all that is ahead. >>> but tonight we begin with the u.s. and russia relations in a downward and dangerous spiral. today white house spokesperson jay carney spent most of his daily briefing fielding questions about russia. the president announced a rare news conference for tomorrow. we expect he will answer a flood of questions about the increasingly chilly relations between the two countries. now, when you hear the u.s. and russia are bickering, when you hear their relationship is deteriorating or on the rocks, i want you to keep in mind, these two countries, our country and russia, still hold 94% of the world's nuclear weapons. 94%. you can see it on this graph. the chart comes from a plough share fund using estimates from hans chris

obama care as his issue to go after, that is the reddist of the red meat for those folks. >> going after a matter of law. it is an act of law. not just obama care. the affordable care act of 2010. let's take a look. here's last night, ted cruz rallied the base as you said against any attempts to compromise on health care or in his words blink. there's the language of the cuban missile crisis. don't blink. let's watch. >> what happens next is president obama and harry reid are going to scream and yell those mean nasty republicans are threatening to shut down the federal government. what has to happen after that is we've got to do something that conservatives haven't done in a long time. we've got to stand up and win the arguments. if you have an impasse you want to know one side or the other has to blink. how do we win this fight? don't blink. >> jim moore, what's the appeal of that cuban missile crisis lingo where the soviets blinked and they took out their missiles? is it that way now? it's not american politics and debate anymore. it's down to basically cold war brinkmanship. we want t
part of obama care only subsidized it. didn't change it. just subsidized it. >> ari melber, the closer, gets tonight's last word. >>> cruising for a bruisen? let's play "hardball." ♪ >> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. tonight, invasion of the body snatchers. the soul of a major american political party is suddenly up for grabs. party of lincoln and the emancipation proclamation of theodore roosevelt and the american conservation movement. the party of ronald ration who signed the deal with -- that eliminates nuclear weapons could be going ballistic. ted cruz talks in brinksmanship terms about shutting down the american government. he speaks in cold war terms of not blinking when it happens. letting the government drop before him as he gazes on in cold contempt. he uses the tactics of joe mccarthy suggesting now defense secretary chuck hagel, a fellow republican, might be an agent of this country's enemies. iran and north korea. will the republicans fight back? will they refuse to let their party's soul be grabbed by this new hard right that harkens back to
. thanks so much. >>> the news nation is also following president obama, who just wrapped up a town hall meeting at binghamton university in new york. now he heads to scranton, pennsylvania, the final stop of his two-day bus tour centered on his new proposals for cutting college costs. the president also remains focused on other issues, including the crisis in syria. here's what he told cnn in his first comments since an alleged chemical attack on wednesday. >> what we've seen indicates this is clearly a big event of grave concern. that starts getting to some core national interests that the united states has, both in terms of us making sure that weapons of mass destruction are not proliferating as well as needing to protect our allies, our bases in the region. this is something that is going to require america's attention and hopefully the entire international community's attention. >> in egypt today supporters of ousted president mohamed morsi took to the streets in defiance of orders by egyptian authorities to end their protest. meantime, in his interview with cnn, president obama als
, clinton, bush again. why when we get to obama do we need some special id? >> the justice department is already suing texas to stop its new voter id law and reports say that north carolina's extreme voting restrictions will likely be next in line for attorney general eric holder, who also spoke on saturday. >> we must remember generations who carry themselves on a day-to-day basis with great dignity in the face of unspeakable injustice. but for them, i would not be attorney general of the united states and barack obama would not be president of the united states of america. this struggle must and will go on in the cause of our nation's quest for justice. until every eligible american has the chance to exercise his or her right to vote, unencumbered by discriminatory or unneeded procedures, rules, or practices. >> the thousands who came out this weekend are ready to continue that quest for justice. >> we're on our way to north carolina. we're on our way to texas. we're on our way to florida. and when they ask us for our voter id, take out a photo of medgar evers, take out a photo of g

[ laughter ] >> neil: okay. it's the "new york times." >> cut in half by next year? >> there is no data for that. that is a claim by the obama administration. >> no, it's not. >> they claimed they were going to go down between 2010 and 2012. >> new york has all the conditions that obamacare
. this time republicans have such a strong anti-obama instinct, either they're saying he's wrong or trying to have it both ways. we should attack but not the way he wants to attack. as you suggest, a lot of democrats are either hesitant, opposed or ambivalent. so the president is really out there, but he's still stuck with his red line and that is a big problem. >> that sort of calls into the question the red line, right, sam? the president, unlike bush, is not looking for reasons to go to war. i think he wishes desperately that there was no red line, right? nick cross to have makes the case that it's an important thing to ensure, important for the u.s. to not back down having said what we've said about the red line. he writes, are we making too much of chemical weapons, probably less than 1% died of nerve gas attacks. in syria, a principal weapon of mass destruction is the ak-47. yet, there is value in bolstering international norms against egregious behavior like genocide or the use of chemical weapons. since president obama established the red line, he can't whimper and back down. >> th
tension, obama cancels the newton meeting -- putin meeting. thank you for being with us. guest: thank you for having me. >> later today the president will visit with troops and families from camp pendleton in california. tonight -- >> if you were an invited guest of the madisons or in the mid- circle of family or friends, you would be invited into the driving room from the drawing room. madison, in an atsual setting, would sit the head the table. her husband was at the center. dolly would direct the conversation and james would be able to engage in intimate or lively conversation with the people to his immediate right and left. set forle today is eight people. there could be as many as 20 people served in the dining room. that would not be unusual. indeed, dolly madison consider dining at montpelier to be so much more relaxing than entertaining in washington. she said it is less worry feeding 100 people at montpelier than 25 in washington. inour encore presentation continues at 9:00 tonight on c- span. balz discussedn his recent book about the future of elections of america which details
it here on msnbc. >>> the intelligence community continues to respond to president obama's move to enact new guidelines to make government surveillance more transparent. former cia and nsa director michael hayden noted today that the president never actually said anything had been done wrong. >> to me, the most telling thing she said was perhaps something he didn't quite say. he didn't suggest he was going to operationally change this program. i mean, there's no suggestion that what he was doing, and what president bush was doing before him with regard to these programs was anything other than lawful, effective and appropriate. >> on "meet the press," republican iowa congressman steve king stood by his comments about immigrants he made last month, saying that his remarks about drug smugglers outnumbering valedictorians were accurate and new legislation granting the shorter path to citizenship would not differentiate between the two groups. >> my heart goes out to the valedictorians brought here by their parents. but we cannot put our sympathies for people in that condition greater than o

nothing to do with gun control. they're talking about obama care, stopping it is the government takeover of health care. my reading on this is a little cynical. it's the conservative movement at large saw an opportunity to overturn elections. >> marjorie, you as an elected official don't get to constitute your recall election. the people decide that. that's a constitutional fundamental right as upheld by a judge in denver court. we live in a representative system where our elected officials go and they represent the interests of their district. you know, in deference to dave, this isn't just a recall election driven by a small group of people. he mentioned 5,000 people. there were over 16,000 people in the area that signed a petition for recall just for senator john morse. that was more votes than he got when he first got elected to the position. 10,000 or more of those got certified. and now we're in a recall situation. but, look, that district's very interesting. a third republican. a third democrat, a third unaffiliated. the interesting thing about this is it's really not a party batt

of campaign-style features that president obama has been making across the country. selling his economic plan and calling republicans in congress the obstacles to true progress. >> now, unfortunately for the last year or so, we've had an endless parade of distractions and political posturing and phony scandals that shift focus away from what do we need to do to shore up middle class families and create ladders of opportunity for folks to get in the middle class? and as washington heads towards another budget debate, the stakes could not be higher. and that's why i'm traveling around, laying out my ideas for how we have to build the cornerstone of what it means to be middle class. a good job with good wages, a home to call your own, a good education, affordable health care that's there for you when you get sick. a secure retirement even if you're not rich. >> well, a new fox news poll finds the president's message may be falling on deaf ears. an overwhelming majority of voters 71% believe the new speeches are full of old ideas. we have team fox coverage. doug mcelway has more on the jobless nu
